Ratings and Reviews
I want my money back!
During the free-trial period this app, while not brilliantly organized, worked fine, no crashes. The day after the first month was billed, it began crashing! Every darn time I start to watch an episode of something, about 10-15 minutes in, it crashes. Doesn't matter which device (iPhone, iPad, Apple TV) or what the program is. Close app, reset device, restart app, crash, repeat. Delete app, reset device, reinstall app, sign in again, choose program, start to play, crash. Doesn't matter at that point that I like programs offered, I'm fed up!
As for the app's design, it's as if whoever the developers were, they must have never used any other streaming service themselves, since the app has virtually none of the features a good streaming service has. Doesn't properly track and save what you've watched so you can immediately return to a series and/or episode you've already watched. Search makes it crash. What's the point?
While I like the huge selection of British programming that it has, what use is it if the app is unusable?! The only reason I gave this app two stars is the size of its library of programming.
Good Content, but sign in issues
I am a huge Brit tv fan, and luckily live in DC metro area where we get a unique PBS channel, WETA UK showing 24 hour Brit programming. Even though it's wonderful, I also subscribe to Acorn, and now BritBox to round out my options with very few duplications. However, I have had to sign out and back in every day to access BritBox as I am prompted with " invalid token". This is got to be resolved soon. Support suggests to sign out and back in, duh,... I get that, but every day? UPDATE...I've adjusted my rating to 5 stars after sign in issues resolved. Britbox app support contacted me to confirm their update corrected my issue. Barely over a week new, and already more content. I haven't used any other apps all month! Very Happy!!
Edit/Update Several months on and I'm still loving this app!!! No longer any sign in issues.
I've learned that 95% of the classic Doctor Who episodes that are NOT available on BritBox can be watched on Dailymotion, although some are animated.
GREAT Classic TV
I was stationed at RAF Upper Heyford many years ago and while there I fell in LUV with British comedies and murder mysteries. For years, my local PBS station was the only place I could watch some of my old faves...until (Netflix and) BritBox!
This app has a good variety of comedies, mysteries, dramas, etc., and I’ve had no problems streaming with or without WiFi.
I do have a better experience suggestion: it would be really helpful to have the ‘Up Next’ feature like Netflix so when one episode ends, within a few seconds the next one begins.
A couple of requests: there are so many crazy funny comedies that would be great additions — shows like Open All Night, ‘Allo ‘Allo, Yes, Minister, Last of the Summer Wine, Waiting for God, May to December, Dad’s Army and You Rang, M’Lord. A few really good mysteries to add to the current library: Murder in Suburbia, Foyle’s War, The Inspector Alleyn Mysteries, The Avengers, Special Branch and The Saint.
If you like watching British classics mysteries like Agatha Christie’s Poirot and Prime Suspect and comedies like Are You Being Served, As Time Goes By and Blackadder, then I highly suggest you check out the 7-day FREE trial. During my FREE trial I discovered a few new shows so I decided to subscribe and I’m very glad I did — I’m really enjoying having all the time access to some of my favorite British shows!!!
